with the democrats. go down the road with interesting senate races. >> first, massachusetts, scott brown. he won miraculous victory in 2010, against elizabeth warren, liberal line in this race attracted -- this is the glamour race of the year. >> bret: the rcpi average has warren 54.5 and brown 46%. >> right. she has been, each of them raised $50 million, amazing amount. 60% of her money is from out of state. she is an icon for liberalism in the country. brown is suffering from the fact it's not wave election in 2010. he does not have a weak opponent like in 2010. he has a presidential ticket at the top. which for a state that is 3-1 democratic hurts him. however, one thing that happened is romney has better. he was down 30 in the state, he is now down 14. he is not going to win the state. but the closing of that gap helps brown to the extent it was a boston globe poll a couple of days ago that had them dead even. so i think he is gaining. still behind. the odds are she wins. it could be a brown upset. >> bret: chuck? >> i just want to say this is going to be a great year for senate races. there

steve brown has more. >> i bet on american workers and manufacturing. >> that is how president obama describes the u.s. auto bail-out on the campaign trail. in 2009, teetering g.m. got billions, but the deal would not work without labor peace. and the united auto workers wanted delphi members taken care of. delphi was and is g.m.'s top part supplier. at the same time of the bail-out, delphi itself was wading through bankruptcy. it canceled ils employee pension, handing off remain to the federal government. nightmare for delphi retirees. >> my pension went from $2,550 a month geis guaranteed to gettg $385 a month. >> dellny members were folks that the international union wanted help. if they fully restored the pension, the uaw would go along with the bail-out. g.m. agreed. >> when you first hear the union pensions are topped off, you would think yes, even would be treated fairly and equally. that was not the case. >> tom rosen, 20,000 salary delphi retirees got no pension bail-out. many sus sent they know why -- suspect they know why. >> union had political connections and we did not.
